Ty Dolla $ign’s mission remains to free his younger brother TC, who is currently serving a life sentence for murder. After naming his debut album Free TC, the Los Angeles singer-songwriter releases a documentary by the same name about why he feels his brother shouldn’t be incarcerated at all.
The 12-minute Daniel Kaufman documentary, which features music by Ty, is a black-and-white mini-film, premiered by Noisey. It features interviews with TC, family members, and Dolla $ign himself.
Ty released the doc with a message: “I called my album Free TC because I’m on a mission to free my brother TC,” he said. “He’s been wrongly accused and by me releasing this album, my goal was to raise awareness to the racial and social injustices and mass incarceration that’s going on in our country right now. This is really more than just an album; it’s about a movement. This documentary is meant to give the world a closer look at TC’s story and what I’m trying to do with this album.”
Earlier this year, Dolla $ign also released a deluxe edition of his debut album featuring new songs. He is currently touring through Europe, but will return to the U.S. to perform at the BET Experience in June.
